In 2011 Robin Hardy released ''The Wicker Tree'', a companion piece of sorts based on his novel 'Cowboys for Christ', with Lee appearing in a cameo (but not, as some have reported, as Lord Summerisle). Hardy is attempting to film a third and final installment in a ''Wicker Man'' trilogy - ''The Wrath of the Gods''. A massive flop of an Indiegogo campaign in Summer 2015 (raising only $8,318 of a goal of ''$210,000'') didn't help matters; Hardy's death on July 1, 2016 may have completely ended hopes of completing the trilogy.

* EverybodyLovesBlondes: Blonde hair certainly seems to be a requirement for a female leadership role on Summerisle.

* MakingUseOfTheTwin: Geraldine Cowper, who played Rowan, had a twin sister named Jackie. It is Jackie in the photograph that is sent to Sergeant Howie, and she also replaced Geraldine in a couple of the shots during the cave chase scene at the beginning of the film's climax. Jackie Cowper died in 1995; Geraldine Cowper, who now goes by Gerry, is still alive.



* TheMerch: Includes lots of [=DVDs=] of the film, ''two'' soundtracks made by ''two'' different record companies (a 1998 release from Trunk Records, and a 2002 release from Silva Screen Records), and a massive set of ''trading cards'' which feature screenshots, behind-the-scenes photos, and sketches of different scenes from different artists.

* {{Arcadia}}: Summerisle sees itself as this (with a neopagan twist), but even before we learn the [[TownWithADarkSecret Dark Secret]], we know something's definitely ''off'' about the place.
